Cultures of CIRI Storytelling Platform

Alaska Native peoples have long used storytelling as a means of communication— to educate, present ideas and values, and simply entertain. An innovative new story-sharing platform, Cultures of CIRI provides CIRI shareholders and descendants an opportunity to connect with others by sharing “sukdu”—the Dena’ina Athabascan for “stories.”

The art of storytelling has evolved, and we have evolved along with it! To submit your own stories and immerse yourself in Alaska Native storytelling culture, visit
